Herm Sprenger Prong Collars: Are They Good?
This is *not* a sponsored post, but this question comes up often with The Beacon Dog Academy clients. Herm Sprenger prong collars are one of the most recognized brands of prong collars and they are widely used by dog trainers around the world. But, how good are they, actually?
As Daniel explains in this Q&A video, Herm Sprenger prong collars are his preferred brand for several reasons. Many law enforcement and other word dog training organizations use Herm Springer prong collars exclusively to train their dogs. This is a strong indicator of the quality and efficiency of the product, as most police departments have exacting requirements for training equipment that can stand up to frequent use in harsh conditions.
Herm Sprenger prong collars are Made in Germany rather than being outsourced to China or other countries where they make inferior copies of high-quality products. They feature a steel core, combined with nickel and chrome layers to achieve a highly polished, rust-resistant, and durable dog training tool.
The collar prongs are arranged evenly around the collar so that even pressure is applied to all of the dog's neck area, regardless of how it decides to move or twist its head. The prongs are also rounded at the ends so they won't catch on materials during training sessions. This helps reduce the risk of injury to the dog or damage to the training area.
Additionally, Herm Sprenger prong collars are designed to easily add or remove links to adjust the collar to your dog's unique neck size. The disadvantage to purchasing these collars is that they are somewhat expensive. After all, you get what you pay for. However, if you buy a Herm Sprenger prong collar from a reputable supplier, the price should reflect the quality of this training tool.
If you're looking for an effective and practically indestructible dog training device to help with prong collar training, give your local dog training supply store a call and see if they offer Herm Sprenger prong collars.
